Chiefs Win Tough Week 3 Matchup Against Eagles

After the first half of the Chiefs and Eagles week 3 matchup, it was anyone’s game.  In a half marked with a low score and both teams having trouble getting anything going, the second half was a bit different.  With big touchdown scoring plays from Kareem Hunt and Travis Kelce, the Chiefs finally got things rolling in the second half.  The defense, behind big plays from Chris Jones, also helped the Chiefs pull out the victory.  After moving to 2-0, the Chiefs look forward to a matchup with the Chargers in week 3.

Chiefs Release Spiller…Again

C.J. Spiller was released from the Kansas City Chiefs once again.  This time, the move makes room on the roster for practice squad call-up Akeem Hunt.  Hunt, who was signed to the Chiefs before their season opener against the Patriots, is someone who could be a definite asset on special teams.  After the move, Spiller will once again be a free agent.  If something were to happen to a Chiefs running back during the season, since Spiller knows the offense, he would be a top candidate to sign.

How did Chris Jones dominate the Eagles?

Chris Jones burst onto the scene last season for the Kansas City Chiefs.  By any definition, Jones had a good season in 2016.  But he flew under the radar.  Well, after Sunday’s game against the Eagles, that isn’t the case anymore.  Jones sported a stat line that read 4 tackles, 3 sacks, 2 forced fumbles and an interception.  Helping the Chiefs get the win, Jones also gave good reason to consider himself for Defensive Player of the Week.  Going forward, Jones will not be a name that flies under the radar, but one to watch closely.

Kareem Hunt has Big Second Half in 27-20 Win Over the Eagles 

After week 1 of the NFL season, football fans everywhere knew who Kareem Hunt was.  After another great week 2 performance, fans won’t forget his name anytime soon either.  Hunt had 13 carries for 81 yards, a good chunk of which came in the second half of the win over the Eagles.  The Chiefs had issues moving the ball in the low scoring first half.  But, Hunt erupted in the second half for 73 of  his 81 yards.  Hunt also had what could be called the game changing play after a 53-yard rush to the endzone putting the Chiefs up 13-10.  Hunt will look to continue his great rookie season heading into week 3.

Travis Kelce Continues Goofball Behavior in Week 3

Travis Kelce has unquestioned talent, there is no doubt about that.  After another week and another unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the books, Kelce’s behavior is becoming a problem for Head Coach Andy Reid.  After a Kareem Hunt touchdown against the Eagles, Kelce proceeded to mock the entire eagles sideline earning himself a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.  Reid had some harsh words for Kelce after that play and Kelce seemed unnerved.  Kelce may have a hard time delivering on his proclamation that he would be a leader this season, if he can’t tone down the antics on-field.

Chiefs C Mitch Morse Will Avoid Surgery

Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid said that C Mitch Morse had a foot sprain after the game against the Eagles.  Morse was seen on crutches and had a cast on his foot in the locker room.  However, after a CT Scan and MRI it was revealed that the sprain won’t require any kind of surgery and Morse will only miss a few weeks.  The Chiefs are definitely capable of surviving without Morse for a few weeks.  Zach Fulton will likely fill in while he is out.  But the Chiefs definitely dodged a bullet.  Morse is a fantastic center and a long term absence may have been difficult to deal with.
